Our sweet Harrion's Very Hungry Caterpillar first birthday party!

Design Inspiration

"The Very Hungry Caterpillar" has always been one of my kids favorite books, so it made sense that we would turn the book into a party theme! It was colorful, fun and surprisingly did not break the bank:)

Decorating Style

Fun, colorful & vibrant.

Project Details

We used the book for our menu. Each food that was in the book was at the party. Food tent cards pulled it all together because they referred back to the story.

My talented mother designed the delicious cake which was a combination of images found on the web and our own ideas. She also made the high chair bunting, his birthday hat, and the bunting for the food-table.

Since I am a photographer, I displayed Harrison's monthly pictures- which was amazing to see how much he's changed!

Favorite Items

Besides the birthday boy? The cake!


We had the food that was in the book, but it was inexpensive items for the most part. Many of the items were handmade, such as the buntings (burlap from Hobby Lobby and fabric ordered online).

    Great ideas! I am doing the rag banner for the wooden high chair and can’t figure out how to clip the banner to the wooden tray. Any suggestions???
